We have a core of beer loving musicians who have played sessions together for over 20 years with a number of regulars who join us from time to time. Visiting musicians are welcomed with open arms & no pressure. The music played comes from many genres - Irish to Contemporary to Welsh to Bluegrass, Cajun & Beyond, as long as it's playable live, it's good
Audience participation is welcome and attempted wherever as possible!
Aside from the vocals, instruments played regularly are ... Acoustic Guitars, Banjos, Accordion, Ukulele, Mandolin, Bass, Cajon
Over time we'll be adding past and new pictures to the gallery, You'll be able to see the various individuals from there, not to mention the Visitors. Oh - Did I mention " We love Beer"
We also run the "Lazy Days" Session held on the first Sunday of the month at The Union Inn, Tremadog & during the summer months (July to September) extra sessions on the 3rd Sunday of the month
First thing to note is - This is a session & not a gig. Sessions are not amplified (Though to be honest we can be loud enough when we need to be) and are far more informal. The Travelling Session requires one thing at a venue to keep it going...Beer - yes, we play for beer! and guess what - We don't drive to sessions, so if you want us and it's not a bus ride away(or back) then you'll also have to fork out for the taxi/minbus!
We tend to play on Tuesday Nights but can make exceptions from time to time and with plenty of advance notice.
Please check out the Sessions link for available slots
As part of our restructuring of the Sessions we are now going to sponsor a charity every year - The first year will be dedicated to The Disasters & Emergency Committee
Every Session player will each donate just £1 pound at every event - We will be taking a collection pot round at each event for any public donations (From 1p to whatever) With no requirement or pressure to donate
Future sponsorships will be decided by a vote of the session musicians at the next Christmas Bash in Dec 2018
We hope that both Musicians and Audiences will enter into the spirit of this new idea.
